Fixing Social Security: It’s up to the voters
It should be pretty obvious as we watch how Congress works that politicians aren’t problem solvers, they’re consensus builders. So how can we expect them to fix Social Security’s financial dilemma in a political climate where both parties appear to reflexively reject any idea put forth by the opposite party? The fact is that the solution to Social Security’s woes is within Congress’ hands from proposals already on the table, if only they would put partisanship aside and work together. And that’s where we, the people, come in. Most voters today listen to the hyperbole and often the myth spewed forth about Social Security and form their opinion on that when, if fact, the truth may be quite far from the dialog. In this thoughtful MarketWatch article by Brenton Smith, the author separates the fiction from the truth and reminds us that the one thing which politicians listen to keenly is their constituency, and that the reform we sorely need is for voters to hold Congress’ feet to the fire and demand that they fix Social Security.
AMAC has been at the forefront trying to strengthen Social Security by developing and proposing its Social Security Guarantee. AMAC has been discussing and continues to discuss this common-sense solution with Congressional Representatives in its efforts to protect America’s senior citizens who rely on Social Security.
